Fool

 

Stop

Wasted on a thought

Take it back

And you know already

Just what I’m gonna do

 

Don't

Think that you're so special

You’ve only really got here

Just before I left

 

All this really is

Just another moment

You’ll be wishing for a kiss

Getting up and walking out the door

 

Girl

You shouldn't take your time

I’ll be stepping out of line for you

Running out

 

Cause how many times

Too many times I see your face

Look like the devil

And I can't erase

I’m running away

 

Cause all this really is

Just another moment

You'll be wishing for a kiss

Getting up and walking out the door

Girl, what you waiting for?

 

Cause all this really is

Just what you say it is

A fucking little game

Between you and the whole wide world

 

Now

See you waiting for a train

While I’m wasting all our days together

Being a fool

 

Please

Don’t get sentimental

Nothing lasts forever

Don't you know

All we had was now

 

Cause all this really is

Just another moment

I’ll be wishing for a kiss

Getting up and walking out the door

Girl, what you waiting for?

 

All this really is

Just another moment

I’ll be wishing for a kiss

Getting up and walking out the door

Girl, what you waiting for?


You Are Not Who You Are

 

Not so long ago

Just beyond the hilltops

Lived a

Girl I used to know

She spoke in rhyme

And never knew the time

 

Not so long ago

In her room made of ashes

Did I

Ask her for her name

She struck a match

And threw it at the wall

 

When you look to the skies

It is just a disguise

You are not who you are

When you’re not who you are

 

Not so long ago

The flowers that she gave me

Turned to

Crimson in the snow

Finding only silence

In the rain

 

Not so long ago

Did she

Linger like the smoke between

Every word I spoke

Surely, I could never understand

 

When you look to the skies

It is just a disguise

You are not who you are

When you’re not who you are

When you look to the stars

And you know you’re too far

You are not who you are

When you’re not who you are

 

Surely, I could x7

Understand

 

Just before the fall

She vanished through the branches

Of the trees

That knew it all

Surely, I could never understand

 

When you look to the skies

It is just a disguise

You are not who you are

When you’re not who you are

When you look to the stars

And you know you’re too far

You are not who you are

When you’re not who you are


Now Is Better Than Never (But Not Now)

 

I want the nerve

To talk to you

Now is better than never!

Does it have to be so tough?

Now is better than never!

There’s something you should know

Now is better than never!

But everytime I try to say

It always just slips away

 

Now is

Now is better than

Better than never

Now is

Now is better than

Better than never

But not now x4

 

Today’s the day I talk to you

Now is better than never!

It’s just something that

I gotta do

Now is better than never!

I try not to act too cool

Now is better than never!

Cause then you’ll know that I’m

Just a fool

 

Now is

Now is better than

Better than never

Now is

Now is better than

Better than never

But not now x8

 

I don’t know

What you like

What you do

Who you listen to x4

 

It’s not so hard

To talk to you

You like The Kooks

And you like me, too

I love the way you look at me

I love the way I feel with you

 

Now it’s

Now it’s better than

Better than ever

Now it’s

Now it’s better than

Better than ever

And it’s now x4


Stop It, I Say

 

Wearin’ my striped shirt

Sittin’ on the stairs

Messin’ with your hair

Starin’ at me with a cigarette

In your mouth

 

Stop it, I say

Smokin’ me out

Stop it, I say

Leavin’ me down

Stop it, I say

Freakin’ me out

Stop it, I say

Runnin’ about

 

I won’t wait

I won’t wait

I won’t wait

It’s too late

 

Chills ran down my spine

As I remembered the time

When she asked me to stay

With the moon on her face

And the youth in your eyes

To the warmth of your breath

Yet I was chilled by the loneliness

Of which you left

 

Stop it, I say

Leavin’ me down

Stop it, I say

You’re all over town

Stop it, I say

Freakin’ me out

Stop it, I say

I ain’t got a doubt

 

In my mind

In my mind

All the time

All the time

 

Time spills from a clock

I wonder, shall I knock

On her cocoon with some roses

Even if it’s locked

Or do I wait for the day

When she’ll ask me to stay

Once again you’ll betray me

And I’ll push you away

 

Stop it, I say

Leavin’ me down

Stop it, I say

Just don’t make a sound

(Shhh!)

Stop it, I say

Runnin’ about

Stop it, I say

Ain’t got a doubt

 

In my mind

In my mind

All the time

All the time

 

Wearin’ my striped shirt

Sittin’ on the stairs

Messin’ with your hair

Starin’ at me with a cigarette

In your mouth x3


Spice CHai

 

I don’t ever want to go to the beach

Don’t wanna deal with the sand

Between my toes

I want a life that's perfect and free

I want a life that’s all about me

 

Living like

“Damn, I think I might die.”

Waking up at ten

My oh, my

Taking pictures of my

Spice chai

 

All I ever do

Look at myself

I got no time for nobody else

Cause what else is there to do

When you look so slick

Take another good one with your

Selfie stick

 

One of these days

I think I might try

Giving up it all

Just saying goodbye

Cause all I really want

(Spice chai)

All I really, really want

 

I’m just sick and tired

Of this little life I lead

Baby

Come a little closer

And I’ll tell you

What I need

 

Oh

I don’t ever wanna go

To the beach

Don’t wanna deal with the sand

Between my toes

Taking pictures of my

Spice chai


Floating Down A River

 

Floating down a river

Looking for the sea

Guess who’s thinking of ya’

What if it was me?

 

Nothing really matters

Livin’ in a dream

Tear your tees to tatters

Get out of your routine

 

Tell me that you need me

Wanna be with you always

Kissin’ on my baby

Never felt like this before

 

So now they really on ya’

All your pretty things

Go crash my new Mercedes

Run it into me

 

Get your priorities in order

The things that are real

Ain’t the things you can touch

But the feelings that you feel

 

Tell me that you need me

Wanna be with you always

Kissin’ on my baby

Never felt like this before

 

Tell me that you need me

Driving with the windows down

Kissin’ on my baby

Never felt like this before


What She Knows

 

Hey! Oh! x7

 

She likes to run around

Chasing shadows and

Reflections off the ground

But what she’s looking for

It can’t be found

Because it’s under the ground

 

He’s always standing here

Lookin’ so, so superior

Oh, but he needs to learn

Oh, that he’s just a clown

 

She doesn’t have a clue

Of what’s going on around

But it may be getting loud

So loud

She doesn’t care of

What we think about her

All she knows is that

She’s found it now

 

We like to run around

Always forgetting how we came about

Never regretting how we look or sound

Oh, but it’s gonna get loud

 

She doesn’t have a clue

Of what’s going on around

Oh, but it may be getting loud

So loud

She doesn’t care of

What we think about her

All she knows is that

She’s found it now

 

She likes to run around

Chasing shadows and

Reflections off the ground

But what she’s looking for

It can’t be found

Because it’s under the ground

 

She doesn’t have a clue

Of what’s going on around

Oh, but it may be getting loud

So loud

She doesn’t care of

What we think about her

All she knows is that

She’s found it

All he knows is that

He’s found it

All we know is that

We found it now


Green Eyes

 

Look at these flowers I brought you

Got caught out in the rain

Blue eyes turning to green now

I still love you all the same

Love you all the same

 

Found myself just wandering

Across my lonely mind

You left me here with nothing

Taking all my time

On my way away from everything

That time sure looks good to me now

 

Devil and the deep blue seas

Ahead of me

Drown um’ in the orange moon

My memories

On my way away from everything

So far that I’m losing it now

 

Losing my

Everything I thought was mine

Losing

Just to have it one more time

Losing

Maybe if I lose my mind


Wednes-day, Nov 31

 

Nothing never changes

Nothing ever stays the same

Tomorrow and the next day

Never knowing what they used to

Can’t help but wonder

 

I met you in the cornerstone

Walked around until I drove you home

Oh, and the next day

Sweet December came

 

Nothing ever changes, babe

Nothing ever stays the same

Tomorrow and the next day

Never knowing what they used to

I can’t help but wonder

 

I left you in the cornerstone

Walked around until I drove you home

Oh, and the next day

Sweet December came

 

Nothing never changes, babe

Nothing ever stays the same

Tomorrow and the next day

Never knowing what they used to

I can’t help but wonder

Can’t help but wonder

 

I met you in the cornerstone

Walked around until I drove you home

Oh, and the next day

Sweet December came

 

Nothing ever changes, babe

Nothing ever stays the same

Tomorrow and the next day

Never knowing what they used to

I can’t help but wonder

Can’t help but wonder x5


Watch-tower

 

I can’t recall

What it was I felt

When you left me standing here

But something in

Your soul tonight

Has got me filled

With the fear of

 

Summer night, summer breeze

The sound of your voice

My heart to freeze

Where do we go?

What do we do?

Oh, but for one more taste of you

 

You’ve been such a waste of me!

You’ve been such a waste of me!

If only I’d turned from your gaze

In the first place

 

I was waiting by the watchtower

For you to come my way

But from the darkness

You call my name

Darling, you led me astray

 

Too many time you summon me

And I obey

Oh, I obey

But tonight I won’t be your pray

I’ll walk away

I’ll walk away

 

You’ve been such a waste of me!

Oh, you’ve been such a waste of me!

If only I turned from her gaze

In the first place

 

Yeah! x4

 

Even now I can’t recall

Just what it was that made me fall

For you

 

You’ve been such a waste of me! X8

If only I turned from your gaze

In the first place


Cigars

 

So here you are again

Racing in and out

Of my mind tonight

The thought of you

Wells up within me

The scent of her hair

I’m only alive for the moment so

Why must I try

To relive all the times you’ve forgotten

You were still on my mind

 

Just when I think that I know for certain

You return to tow my heart away

Back to a place where I swear I’d forgotten

Where everything seems a dream

 

Please

Let me take a breath now

Or just

Smother me with your lies

Doing it again, babe

Just go ruin it again

 

Doing it again

Doing it again

Losing it again x7

 

I get up but I haven’t yet woken

Will I find myself?

The pressure pushes us

But the lies burn deeper

My loneliness strives to survive

 

We keep on straying into the darkness

That’s disguised as the light

At the fucking end

Of the tunnel

 

We sing the same songs

Asking where we see ourselves today


Sally Tuesday

 

Sally Tuesday

Said it “wasn’t serious anyway”

Sally Tuesday

Spoke a lot of things that she don’t know

Sally Tuesday

Dragged my little heart back to Friday

And with it she invited

All the sickness that she calls a game

 

No matter how I try

Just don’t know the reasons why

She abuse me

Oh, she use me

So simple to see now

It’s just so easy to allow

She abuse me

Oh, she use me

 

Sally Tuesday

Really didn’t think I was serious

Sally Tuesday

Really didn’t think I was serious

 

Sally Tuesday

Dragged my little heart back to Saturday

And with it she invited

All the others she’s requited

It’s a shame

 

She broke my guitar

You know, she took it too far

She abuse me

Oh, she use me

She took the keys to my car

Who does she think that she are?

She abuse me

Oh, she’s a movie

 

Sally Tuesday

Sally Tuesday

Come on, Sally Tuesday

Sally Tuesday

Come on, Sally Tuesday

Sally Tuesday

She’s my Sally anyday


Milky

 

Please stop myself

From doing any wrong

But if I stop myself

Does that make it right

 

It’s been too hard living

Without my mind

All I thought it would take was time

But what have I got now?

What have I got now?

What have I got now?

 

Why does it take so long

To find my way with words

But if I wait too long

Will you still pretend?

 

It’s been too hard living

Without my mind

All I thought it would take was time

But what have I got now? x2

What have I got now?

What have I got now?

 

If I told you then

You know I never would

But if I told you now

Would you still be my friend?

 

It’s been too hard living

Without my mind

All I thought it would take was time

But what have I got now? x2

 

Been too hard living

Without my mind

All I thought it would take was time

Take time
